Google Pixel 3 – Speed Up The Lag

If your Google Pixel 3 or 3XL is feeling a bit slow you might try changing animation settings in developer mode and disabling Digital Wellbeing. Shortening the animation settings definitely makes all basic UI actions faster, whether you like it or not depends if you like slow and “smooth” or instant action. Disabling Wellbeing immediately made my phone smoother and faster. The relatively new Wellbeing feature may improve with updates from Google.
